New York City Ferry Accidents

Dozens of ferry boats crisscross hundreds of routes every day in New York Waterways from Staten Island, to Manhattan, and even across state lines to New Jersey. While the vast majority of these daily cruises go off without a hitch, a surprising number of New York City ferry accidents occur each year. While most result in only minor injuries, a handful of disastrous crashes have claimed hundreds of lives and injured thousands of people in the past.

High-Speed NYC Ferry Had History of Previous Accidents

A New York City ferry accident that caused dozens of injuries was just the latest in a series of mishaps for one fated vessel. A high-speed SeaStreak ferry that runs between New Jersey and the lower tip of Manhattan crashed into a pier at 12 knots per hour on January 9th after completing its second routine trip of the morning. The crash injured 83 people and put one man into critical condition with life-threatening injuries. While the boat's master blames mechanical failure for the accident, it's not the first time that this particular ferry has crashed.
